Project Title: Spintronics in Graphene


Project Acronym: SPINOGRAPH


The SPINOGRAPH - “Spintronics in Graphene” is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) providing state-of-the-art training for early stage researchers (ESR) and Experienced Researchers (ER) in the field of Spintronics in Graphene.

The primary objective of this network is to significantly enhance the employment prospects of E(S)Rs. The network also aims to engage E(S)R in research projects in world-leading laboratories, that pioneered the research in spintronics and graphene, as well as in collaboration with small and medium enterprises in the emerging industry of graphene production, nanofabrication and of their applications, ensuring that all researchers receive scientific and complementary skills training that is critical both to academia and industry and for early researchers to reach professional maturity.

The network brings together 9 world leading partners and offers a total of 11 Early Stage Research (ESR) PhD positions for 36 months and 4 Experienced Researcher (ER) post-doctoral positions for 24 months.

The recruited researchers will participate in challenging and exciting projects in the forefront of research on Spintronics in Graphene and benefit from several network wide Schools, workshops and specific training courses.
